NASA’s Free 3D Models

by on August 19, 2010
 

NASA has released a large library of models for everything (realistically) space-oriented.  It contains astronauts, spacesuits, satellites, shuttles, and various bits of technology surrounding them.

These models are for anybody that uses a 3D software package. Most of the models are in the common .3ds format, which can be read by most 3D programs. Some models, however, are in their original .lwo, .fbx, or .obj formats to preserve details that would be lost in conversion.

I wonder how long before someone recreates the JSC Mission Control room in Second Life using this.
